Susan Weiskittle Barrick Endowment for Leadership Enrichment

Established in 2012, the Susan Weiskittle Barrick Endowment for Leadership Enrichment creates a unique opportunity—through speakers and other special programming—to expand the leadership development of participants beyond the classroom, work and home.

This endowment is designed to connect, educate and inspire Alpha Phi women of all ages and backgrounds by providing engaging and unique experiences that fuel ideas, productivity and achievement.

Annual grant(s) are awarded each fiscal year. Grants of up to $5,000 are available. The full amount may be granted to one chapter or divided among several applicants to assist in leadership development programs.

Eligible Alpha Phi collegiate chapters are notified by email with application instructions in the fall.
